Instilling a love of books with children is so important and reading to them at bedtime and during the day is so important. But, you can extend this love even further by connecting their favourite books even further and making learning fun. Since 2012 we have co-hosted The Virtual Book Club for Kids here on Rainy Day Mum doing just that. Bringing books alive and connecting classic and modern storybooks for kids with crafts, activities, and recipes. As we head into the new academic year I'm excited to announce this year's online book club and invite you along to bring books alive connecting and creating with your kids.
The Virtual Book Club for Kids
If this is your first time discovering The Virtual Book Club for Kids then a little about it to get you started. Each week join us over on Facebook and over on the Virtual Book Club for Kids blog sharing themes and featured books throughout the school year that your toddlers and preschoolers will love.
We will share some activities on Rainy Day Mum and in the Virtual Book Club for Kids Group you will be able to see our week plan for toddler and preschool activities that are easy to do at home and fun to do with your kids.
This year because of the current situation every book featured can be found being read aloud on YouTube! Perfect for sharing with your toddler and preschooler as you have fun together at home.
